My mom and dad decided to go to Black Rock Lodge in Cayo. Cayo is located in West Belize, close to the border with Guatemala. This was a gift for my birthday… For them it was their first time, however not for me.
I went there before with a friend and it was so great! The nature there is beautiful, the owner of the stables is extremely nice and he has such beautiful horses! Because I had so much fun I wanted to go back!
We flew from San Pedro to Maya Flats with Tropic Air, and the flight took about 45 minutes from Belize Municipal, which is a small airport in Belize City.
Once arrived in Cayo, it took only about 20 minutes to drive to the Lodge.
Our neighbor, Uncle Jim and Auti Diane also came along… I love them a lot and it was fun to do a trip with them.
About Black Rock Lodge
Once I got there, the staff of the restaurant looked to me like, “don’t we know you?”( well some of them ) Of course I explained that I was there a few weeks before, and they were happy to see me again.
We had a great room… there were so many plants around it, and the room had no windows… It was so cool to sleep in the middle of nature. Of course the room had mosquito screens, so small visitors could not come inside.
The food at the lodge is also pretty awesome… They have each evening a set menu, that you can choose from. My favorites were their broccoli soup and they also served cheesy fries. (When I’m writing about it, I am getting so hungry again)
At Black Rock you can do a lot of fun activities… You can go River Tubing, of course horseback riding, you can even ride a horse to a cave system and then take them back to the stables… You can also hike to waterfalls. At Black Rock there are some other tours I didn’t do or I didn’t know about, so you can always find about that…
Most amazing Horse- Back-Riding ever!
For the Horseback-Riding, I went together with my mom, my brother Alexander and Uncle Jim. We did the Jungle Tour and it was amazing… the nature so beautiful, we walked with the horses in the jungle, went over mountains and we even went to a Maya Temple. It was pretty cool as when we went with our horses on top of the maya temple, we had an amazing view! There we took a little brake, drank some water and continued our tour.
All the horses had different personalities… The horses were great but I liked my horse called “Cookie” the best. He listened so well to me and was not lazy. My mom’s horse name was Obama, he was old and not so pretty but listening very well too. At the end of the tour the owner pealed fresh oranges for us, which they farm themselves. I loved it there, and was allowed to stay as long as I wanted. The owner has so many pretty horses… there was even a baby one. I knew this as I had been there before, but got so surprised to see how fast he had grown… If you do this tour, or stay at Black Rock Lodge, you don’t want to leave, and go horseback riding over and over again.
